with muskets and militias. no single person can train all the math and science teachers will need to equip our children for the future, building the roads, networks, and research laboratories that will bring the jobs to our shores. now more than ever we must do these things together, as one nation, one people. [applause] this generation of americans has been tested by crises that steal our resolve and prove our resilience. a decade of war is ending.

worse in history than they do in math and science. >> one of the reasons is that kids are bored by it because it is taught -- they know the ending. that is why history is not popular. we end up like a tv serial, the good guys who come out ok. they want the juicy stuff, the horrible stuff. when lynne cheney was at the national endowment of humanities, she was very active in suppressing and changing history books. texas has been very active in keeping what our leadership does badly out of the books. >> and that is the standard for textbooks all over the country, texas. >> i want to go back to the moment we first talked about, when henry wallace is defeated to be the vice-presidential running mate, as he had been the time before, for fdr. why did fdr give in? he had been so powerful? he had bucked the system before. he was a little bit more like obama today, but circumstances changed him. >> what changed him was the uprising on the left. in 1934, the massive strike movement, the rise of upton sinclair, there was a massive upsurge of the left in the mid- 1930's. the republican right
that fault zones are dangerous places to live but thanks to science we have increased more than two orders of nag any attitude the safety of living in earthquake country. that fact was demonstrated by the different experiences in death and destruction in haiti where earthquake resiliency is nonexistent and chile that took its playbook from california. that's why i'm optimistic that science and engineering calls make the coastal zone a safer place to live. there are important differences between the problem of earthquake hazards and coastal hazards. if we put aside those bumper stickers that say stop plate tectonics. humans have an effect on the rate and the intensity of earthquakes. on the other hand, we have increased coastal hazards by increasing the rate of wetland loss barrier island erosion and sea level rise. what this means in addressing coastal hazards we need to confront both mother nature and the enhanced risk from impacts. i would argue the philosophy we have to approach this with is exactly the same. scientists can make recommendations on issues such as what is the recurrence r

science research has shown, which sort of complicates this a little bitting are is that violent video games and movies have a counteracting effect, which is to incapacitate people. when violent movies come out, crime rate goes down because everybody is spending high-risk evening times in the move the theater. the same thing for video games. the incapacitation effect outweighs -- >> we need to have one coming out every day. >> what we don't know is whether you make the games and the movies a little less violent, whether people will spend less time engaging. it's a little complicated on the violence side. >> in fairness in the columbine case, there was a rush to judgment about the impact of violence video games on the young shooters, and then more detailed studies what drove them, one of them was more psycho pathic than people knew at the time and he drove the other shooter to become part of what turned out to be his lethal posse. so the larger issue, it seems to me, is taking all the component parts of violence in the media, a country that has had a lot of violence in its borders, in t
: the science on this is pretty clear -- the question of how you dress -- address thus is obviously much less clear. but caller is alluding to the idea of there being some kind of carbon tax, some kind of way of making it less economically attractive to burn fossil fuels thereby increasing the cost which is then passed on to taxpayers in directly with regulatory action. to do that can have the same the fact. -- effect. there's no question there is an economic cost to addressing this. some of them are direct to consumers and some are little bit longer term and harder to see. it will impose strict regulatory regimes on burning carbon fuels, do we become less globally competitive with countries like china and india that are moving much lower if at all to address this? can -- they can manufacture things cheaply than we can as a result. it ultimately comes down to a value system of -- do we want to sustain our competitiveness for now or do we want to try to head off a problem that is accumulating gradually and will be a much bigger problem potentially down the road host: we are waiting for the hou
